An HIV-positive gay man asks Rush and Valens to re-investigate the case of his dead partner who died of strangulation in 1983. Not only was the victim outspoken in his views about AIDS education within the 1980's secretive gay community, he was also the member of a very prominent family, disowned by his father for his sexual orientation.

  • The title of this episode is the same title of the opening song.
  • This was the most watched episode of the season.
  • In the opening scene, Jeff says he doesn't believe Rock Hudson has liver cancer. Hudson was a noted Hollywood leading man of the 50's and 60's, who was diagnosed with HIV, and whose doctors and publicity staff initially claimed he had been diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. Hudson was not diagnosed until June of 1984, however, making Jeff's line somewhat anachronistic.
